Ahh Coffee… Where do we start. To the average coffee lover, finding a coffee that suits you can be daunting. But not to worry, simply ask one of our servers for a recommendation or tell them a little bit about your favourite taste and we’ll help you choose the right coffee for you.

All our coffees are served with a single shot of Espresso, and we offer a decaffeinated version of all our coffees for those with dietary requirements or coffee preferences.

Choose From:

Americano is a type of coffee drink prepared by diluting an espresso with hot water, giving it a similar strength to, but different flavour from traditionally brewed coffee.

Café Latte
Traditional espresso with textured milk (‘latte’ means milk) and a delicate layer of milk cream on top. The flavour is slightly milder than a flat white as a greater volume of textured milk is added.

You just can’t beat the taste of Illy Caffee’s cappuccino. A shot of espresso with textured milk poured immediately, resulting in the milk crema separating in the cup. This creamy traditional coffee is then garnished with a light dusting of chocolate.

Flat White
Rich, and full flavour, a shot of Illy Caffee’s espresso, topped with textured milk. Ask for a long flat white to make it last!

Café Mocha
Our café mocha is a superb mix of espresso and chocolate with added creamy texture milk and garnished with chocolate powder.

Espresso is coffee brewed by expressing or forcing out a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. The name says all: an espresso is to be freshly prepared and enjoyed immediately

Double Espresso
The same as above of course, but double!

Espresso Macchiato
Ah, the espresso macchiato. An espresso coffee drink with a small amount of milk, usually foamed.

Alcoholic Coffees

For the disconcerting coffee lover, with a taste for a tipple, you’ll love our range of Alcoholic Coffee’s served with whipped cream, a double espresso and a shot of our selected alcohols.

Decaffeinated Ceylon Black tea
A tea best steeped with purified water, this rich Ceylon adds a soft crispness to your day (or night). Add a thin orange slice or a bit of milk, flavour to your liking! 

Gunpowder Green Tea

Earl Grey Yin Zhen Tea
Timeless and just as delicious as ever, the flavour of Bergamot is combined with black tea along with distinguished silky buds and a sprinkling of flower petals to make it a feast for the eyes

Rooibos & Vanilla
Rooibos is grown in mountain areas of the Western Cape. Mixed with sweet vanilla bits, the rooibos tea creates a beautifully mild brew.

Peppermint tea
Perennial herb, peppermint has been harvested before flowering. Known for its powerful scent (menthol), its refreshing infusion is appreciated by many.
